[cheers and applause] change means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it, but the american workers and small businesses who deserve it. unlike john mccain, i will stop giving tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, and i will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in america.
